Car Accidents in San Bernardino

A car accident in California can result in serious and life-altering injuries. According to the California Department of Transportation, there were more than 16,000 people injured or killed in San Bernardino car accidents in 2019. This number can be expected to rise in the coming years as the area’s roadways become more dangerous with additional population and more drivers on the road. Unfortunately, not all drivers operate their cars in a safe manner which can lead to dangerous and devastating collisions when they do occur. While there are certain precautions that can be taken to lower the risk of being involved in an accident, every crash is not preventable.

Following a car accident in California, it is important that crash victims have a complete understanding of their legal rights. If you were injured in an accident and you don’t believe that you were at fault, it is important to have a skilled and competent attorney as soon as possible. The other driver’s insurance company will probably want to speak with you to get your statement on how the accident took place. It is best to be able to retain an attorney as soon as possible so that you do not have to deal with the stress and frustration of dealing with insurance adjusters. Instead, your focus should be on healing and recovery.
